Las Vegas-Clark County Library District to Provide Hydroponic Gardening Programs
Las Vegas-Clark County Library District joined forces with Green Our Planet to extend a hydroponics program across all of its libraries in Southern Nevada. The hydroponic gardens help the community learn how to create their own fruit and vegetable gardens in a hands-on way through in-person classes and events, when “participants can plant seedlings and harvest them at the end of the growing period. Hydroponics units are also available for check out at some branches,” the press release states.
Las Vegas-Clark County Library District “is one of the first library districts in the United States to implement a hydroponics program at their libraries,” says Ciara Byrne, CEO of Green Our Planet. “We look forward to our partnership with the libraries to work together to empower kids, teens and adults in Clark County to learn STEM, conservation and nutrition through hydroponics and become the next generation of scientists, conservationists, farmers, chefs and entrepreneurs.”
